“Everything I’ve done outside of this has been in the shadow of this massive enterprise, or whatever you want to call it.

“But it’s also 10 years of my life, and so, whether it was work or not, it’s such a huge chunk of anyone’s existence.”

He added: “We all grew up on this film, kind of like the audiences have.

“I got married, I had kids, it was kind of like going through high school or something, and by this point in particular there is a very nostalgic, bittersweet quality to it because it’s potentially the last time we are all going to gather like this.

“I don’t think we will ever have another experience like this in any of our careers and I’m not sure even in the industry there will be another experience like this.

“Each film had to work in order for the next one to work, in order for this to happen, so I constantly pinch myself and go ‘Oh my god, how did I land this?’ and (think) how special it was.”
